What methods of payment are available? Which is preferable?

We currently accept payment via international bank transfer, credit card, and PayPal. We accept major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, JCB, AMEX, Diners, etc).

If you make small payments, the fastest and cheapest method is credit card or PayPal. If you pay more than JPY 100,000, it would be cheaper to use an international bank transfer, but it can take 3-4 days.

PayPal transactions may take several hours or more because they sometimes check transactions. A bank transfer usually takes several days.


When do I have to pay for items and shipping fees?

If you want to order goods from Global Market Japan, our staff will first check your order and will send you a quote. If you are fine with the quote, you can proceed with the payment. Once your items get packed, we will bill you for international shipping.


Are there any payment gateway fees?

Payment gateway fees depend on the payment method you choose. 
- For payments made by credit card, and debit card, the processing fee is 3.35% of the payment amount. 
- When paying via an international bank transfer, JPY 2,000 is charged by our bank and there will probably be additional fees charged by your bank or the intermediate bank. These fees are not disclosed, therefore, it’s not estimated beforehand.


Can I pay in USD or any other currency?

We accept only JPY at present time, sorry.
